Singer Miley Cyrus mocked Kentucky
county clerk Kim Davis during her Saturday
Night Live opening monologue.
Hosting the premiere episode of the
41st season, Cyrus said that she wanted to take a moment
to mourn the anti-heroes of the Summer of 2015.
Cyrus told the audience that the show's
return marked the end of summer.
“And with that in mind, I'd like to
take a moment to say goodbye to all of those who made this summer
what it was. And while we'll never think of any of these people
ever, ever again, they certainly did this summer their way,” Cyrus
said before singing a rendition of My Way.
As Cyrus sang, cast members playing
headline grabbing personalities appeared, including Pizza Rat, “that
twerp who raised the price of AIDS medication,” and Rachel Dolezal,
who waved at the audience, showed a tan line and made a motion to
keep it a secret.
Davis, who is fighting to prevent her
county office from issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian
couples and grabbed headlines with claims that Pope Francis had
endorsed her cause, waved her hands in the air, then attempted to
kiss and hug a fleeing pope.
